5th June

DP 156

This was based on the stems of one of my house plants but somewhat abstracted since it was drawn from memory. When I'm drawing real objects I often prefer to draw them from memory - obviously they're less 'accurate' but I often find it makes my drawing stronger. I find that there's too much information if I have the object right in front of me but if I let it 'sit in my head' for a few hours, I can identify and focus on the component that really attracted me. In this case it was the strong diagonal lines on the stems, which I've echoed in the composition - the real house plant has much straighter stems!
